    He's doing such damage. He wants to privatize everything in our state, cut/cut/cut all programs which work and directly benefit our citizens, deny our state needed infrastructure work -- all while subsidizing corporations by giving them unneeded tax breaks. Talk about transfer of wealth. Now he's all for actually letting our citizens die from lack of health care coverage/access, even though the feds are covering nearly all the cost. Then there's the vote rigging....

        A few years ago the state legislators voted themselves a pretty big pay raise. Folks throughout the state were livid. Talk radio - both sides - went nuts. At the same time Corbett was appointed to fill an Attorney Gen. spot, replacing one who went to jail for corruption. Corbett made headlines going after legislators (mostly Dems) for using state resources for campaigns. He made a name for himself going after the folks everyone hated. He ran for governor against a Dem from Allegheny County with absolutely zero name recognition outside of Pittsburgh. The Dem did not run a good campaign and so ... the rest is dark, dark history.

          Just MAYBE if the Democrats want to win they should run candidates people want to vote for and not just fall on the "well hey, he's better than you-know-who!" canard.
